For real. Someone doesn't like her. I think it's just one person.

Only difference between Fortner and Merideth is a title. Both are horrible. The cameraman could do no worse if he was given the chance.

Fortner is terrible. She has never learned when to take.....a breath during her delivery. And she stumbles too much. Terrible!

One person lol. I used to watch THV but since she has been on I stopped. Has nothing to do with liking or disliking a person. She does a terrible job, its not personal.

I wish Gannett would get rid of that awful news package and let stations do custom news packages or something. I hate the current news open.

I love watching Sarah, makes me laugh everytime I see her mess up so I am laughing quite a bit! Ha Ha!
I got a weather radio at kroger the other day and she programmed it for me but its always wrong. She even put some disney stickers on it and some glue and sprinkled some glitter on it, its cool!

The name reorganized and laid off a T and an N. Which means the remaining T and N will have to do twice the work.

Does anyone watch KTHV anymore?

The most stupid saying in modern times, wait for it, wait for it. You obviously watched too many episodes of How I Met Your Mother. Only show I have ever seen that said that stupid line over and over and over.

"What's the dill pickle, is everything kosher?" No, you are obviously wrong. Never have watched an episode of How I Met Your Mother, but I do listen to Huggy Low Down every weekday morning on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

You guys are ridiculous. You obviously have a hard on for KTHV or why would you keep talking about them over and over? I think you are scared little boys and girls. Your attempted con is fooling no one.

KTHV is so down there is not enough viagra in the world to bring it back up. Getting rid of Liz and Mark was a step in the right direction but keeping Sarah and Merideth there is no gain there. If people do not complain then things usually stay the same and 11 has sucked for years now and continues to get worse not better because they let 2 bad ones go yet keep 2 that are worse.

There's a couple more still on air worse than Sarah and Merideth. Which is bad because those two are horrible.

I think Laura Monteverdi is doing a good job, by far the best at kthv in my book and she is new.

I just figured out why the Sarah hater keeps on giving her $hit! She turned you down and apparently rejection is tough for you. Only question I want to know, is it a guy or a lady? Doesn't matter, but it could be kind of sexy... brown chicken brown cow.

I don't think the sara posters hate her as I have not seen them post that they do. I had to take a look at her on 11 and to be honest she is not vey good and I can see why they say that. I guess I hate her now too huh?

Unfortunately she is so horrible LR sized market is about the best she can ever hope for. I would say there might be a future for her programming weather radios but she admitted the other day that Tom has to do that as she is not very good at it. Imagine that!

Normal people critique someone and move on. Some just can't let it go. So you tell me what you call it pal?

Let them complain. I watch only 11 and 11 only for the news and weather but it has gotten pretty bad the last few years. Maybe the suits read these comments and will make changes for the better.I am old and set in my ways so maybe its time I make some changes and watch 7 or 4 instead. Which one is better?

I think a lot of people complained about Liz and their voices were finally heard. I remember reading some comments that she did so much for the diaper drive blah blah blah, IT WAS HER JOB! She got paid to do that. It was not out of the goodness of her heart.

Hard not to critique something that remains stagnant. If 11 would improve just a tiny bit then maybe there would be no need to critique so much, pal. Dismissed.

Apparently it is hard for obsessed no talent hacks such as yourself to move on. Please seek professional help for your affliction. Now go stack your show and get off the blog. And put down that candy bar, because you're getting fat!
